My daughter is usually on very good behavior and when we go out in public with my best friend and her son, she acts just like him! She wants to run around in restaurants and be loud and my nerves end up being shot! What do I do? Not go out with them or what?Answer Question

First off how old is your daughter and your best friends son? My kids are all teens or older.
Sometimes children are drawn to kids that are more adventurous and naughty. They find them to be "exciting" to be around. This was the case when my kids were younger.
Can you have a talk with your daughter about what is acceptable before you go out with this mom and son.. you can refer back to your discussion while you are out.. with out going into any details that would make the mom son couple uncomfortable.
I used to say "honey remember that talk we had earlier today?"

RE: KAT The other mom probably doesn't want to cause a stink. I caused a lot of stink with my girls in public places, they weren't allowed to act that way.NOPE, I don't think so.
Causing a STINK in public places only makes YOU look bad. And make everyone around you uncomfortable. Which in itself is BAD MANNERS! Reviewing expected behavior before you go out is best and then IF you must discipline further going to the bathroom to another private area is always best.
